Eluvium - Nightmare Ending

Portland ambient music baron Matthew Cooper has been recording as Eluvium for a decade, though when we last heard from him, he was flirting with the sound of his own voice on 2010′s Similes. Cooper’s new double album Nightmare Ending, however, returns him to the painfully gorgeous instrumental seascapes that first made his name, though Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan does lend his vocals to the closing track “Happiness.” We’ve posted that song, as well as “Don’t Get Any Closer,” “Envenom Mettle,” and “Entendre.” And now, you can stream all 84 minutes of the album at NPR.

Nightmare Ending is out 5/14 on Temporary Residence.
